Of course that's assuming Alex pulls off the Liquid Glass. ;)

 

I'm sure he will. smile.gif That said, I'm not too sure I'd go back to pairing the LCD-X with a forgiving/sweet tube amp (WA22) now that I've heard it with the LF.

 

His LL got a great write up too on Playback today.

Yeah. I've been waiting for the review to drop for awhile. Heck...I was the one that told him it was up. :D

 

I can see that, but with the LL being current plan I'm fine with waiting on an LF Rev 2 as well.

Anybody who has an SR-009 and is still uncertain which amp they want to pair with it should book a flight to LA and go to the upcoming meet (link in my sig).  There will be Eddie Current's new stat amp, the BHSE, a DIY BH, and the LL all in one room.  DIYT2 and Aristaeus also possibilities.

I very much hope this new electrostatic headphone Sennheiser's working on, looks and is built similar to the HE-90, i.e. Oval shaped ear pieces and Wood + Metal + Leather with no plastic anywhere. If they do I'll more than likely buy one, but if it looks anything like the HD800 I'll just stick with my SR-009's.

i haven't seen it but if it exists i think it's more of a HE-60 replacement

If it's a tweaked out HE-60 or 90 with similar good looks, I'll be waiting with money in hand. But, yeah, if they just poo out some plastic HD800/700 clone I won't even give it a second look.

The HE-60 has a similar look to the HE-90 but without the wood and metal, so on that I'd still probably end up buying this new one, but the wood and metal on the HE-90 does make it the best looking headphone I've ever seen.

Oh, and this is obviously not me testing Spritzer's NDA loyalty. Not at all.

 

I can speak in general terms and I do urge all manufacturers to keep the sets at least close to the Stax standard if they want to release an ESP.  Using the same plug is pretty much out of the question for various reasons but adapters are easy enough to make.

Gotta agree with you guys here. If we do see an HE90 look alike I'm all over it. That and the 007 are my top 2 cans for a beauty contest.

I've been searching the web for any info or pic of the new sennheiser mentioned earlier in this thread. Anyone willing to give a hint of where to find? Many thanks.

No more info has arisen publicly since KG's initial announcement.
